Whoosh. This baby goes round, round, round and round again just for good measure. It's the first ever S&S Skyswat outside of the United States. With a max height of 105 feet and a top speed of 30mph, it isn't exactly the best ride for those new to the wonderful world of flat rides. But for those of us looking for a pretty intense thrill, it shapes up quite nicely. On the end of a huge, double sided swat, guests will find themselves flying headfirst to the sky - and then plummeting straight to the ground. Does great slam dunks!

Quite the ride! It is very quick with fast motions and just a good mood. It was one of the best flats I've ridden and I would like to ride it again. Wish this type of ride was at more parks. 8.5/10 - Edward Morgan
